I know that many here struggle with depression. One of my favorite web comic artists came out of an eighteen month hiatus today, an unannounced hiatus due to depression. She wrote a really beautiful piece on it if anyone would like to read.

OMG! This is my favorite blogger (well, really the ONLY one I read). I just love her writing and creativity. But I stopped checking her site, because it had been SO LONG since she had written anything.

I completely understand her depression. In my world, I experienced it as a wall of glass between me and everything/everyone else. I could see things and people, but I couldn't connect.

I'm so glad she is getting some help. I understand being afraid to medicate because it might somehow steal your creativity, but it's better than not being able to function at all.

Thanks so much for sharing!

I love her too. I also stopped reading.. and got the alert she had posted the other day her pre post. When I read her post yesterday - I had tears.

I am so glad she is back to posting.

my bf sent me this on fb yesterday. it's so weird to see someone think the exact same weirdest thoughts ever that i've struggled with so many times. i'm still processing how eerily she captured my (our) experience...and that of my bf's...like someone expressed myself for me.
